Planning a wedding can be stressful. Add in the fact that you aren’t living in the country and may not speak the local language, and you could have a real headache on your hands. Destination weddings in Europe are really on trend for this coming wedding season, but if you’re overwhelmed with where to start, this post might just have some gems of information for you.     


1. They are experts at what they do


Experienced destination wedding planners like the team at Make It Happen BCN know how daunting it can feel to be planning a wedding from another country. For a couple planning a destination wedding, it’s often the first time they have tried to plan an event in another country. Destination wedding planners do this every day of the week, so they truly understand what needs to be done and will expertly guide you through the process.


2. Your wedding is their job

Planning a wedding can feel like a full time job at times – so it makes sense to outsource the logistics to an expert. You still get to make all the fun decisions like colour themes, and styling, but your planner takes care of the boring admin side of things for you!       


3. Local knowledge


Hiring a destination wedding planner in the country where you’re getting married means they will know all there is to know about local suppliers and customs. They will even have expert tips like the best time for golden hour lighting for your wedding photos.


4. They’re there on the ground

Your destination wedding planner is on hand to go to site visits and other meetings for you. They will ask any questions you have – and often more, based on their knowledge and experience – before feeding the information back to you. They can be your eyes and ears on the ground, to help you pick the very best suppliers to suit your event.   


5. They are there to impartially advise you 


It can be really difficult to make decisions on certain suppliers or style ideas. Having an independent third party to hand can make it easier to make choices, they will present the ideas to you and give you advice on how you can improve on them to get the best effect.     


6. They can actually save you money


Because destination wedding planners work with suppliers on a regular basis they can often negotiate special rates for couples who are getting married on a weekday for example. They can also help you devise your budget, and can help you decide where to splurge and where to save.


7. They’re there for your guests too


Arranging a destination wedding or elopement means your guests will be travelling to your venue from all around the world. Your wedding planner can help you with advice on where they should stay, organise transport, and even arrange group activities for them if they will be in town for a few days before or after the main event.


8. They take away the stress on the wedding day


Your destination wedding planner will be there to manage all your suppliers, ensure the decor is just as it should be, and will make sure everything runs to schedule. Their presence on the day will mean you can relax and enjoy your day without a care in the world.


Talk to you soon, weddingmates!
Hugs and kisses.
